Gravesfield is a fictional town located in the Human Realm of Connecticut, USA.

History

Gravesfield was founded in 1635 AD. In the 1600s, Gravesfield was a "peaceful" city until "tragedy" struck, where 2 brothers were "lured" into the Demon Realm by a "real" witch, never to be seen again.[1]

Long before the start of the series, Eda used the portal as a means of escape,[2] ending up in Gravesfield and terrorizing the locals for years under her alias name "Marylin".[1] Years later, Luz Noceda left Gravesfield when she followed Owlbert into an abandoned house that led to the Boiling Isles.[3]

Following the Day of Unity and the unleashing of the Collector in "King's Tide", Luz is finally back home while Amity, Gus, Hunter, and Willow have taken shelter in the Noceda residence as they are currently stranded in the Human Realm.

By the time of "King's Tide", Luz with the stranded Amity, Gus, Hunter and Willow arrived in front of the main door at the house under the rainwhich Camila opened the door.

Trivia

  • Its newspaper is called the Gravesfield Reporter, which Jacob works for even though he's also the curator of the Gravesfield Historical Society.
  • One of the statues of the town's founders bears a strong resemblance to Philip Wittebane, suggesting Philip may be originally from Gravesfield.
    • The other statue has a similar hairstyle to Hunter.
  • Gravesfield's historical association with witches from the Demon Realm may be based on the real-life Connecticut witch trials of 1647 to 1663 that started the colonial New England witch-hunts, including the later infamous Salem witch trials of 1692 to 1693.
  • Connecticut is also the birthplace of the series' creator, Dana Terrace.
  • The Gravesfield Town Seal is identical to the sigil used by Hunter when he was a Golden Guard.
  • An illustration in the book the town's museum curator shows Camila during his speech on the "abduction of two brothers by a witch in the 1600s" shows one of the brothers with a cardinal on his shoulder, the same animal as Hunter's adopted palisman Flapjack.
